Rolex, as always, was at the heart of the action with testimonee duo Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas becoming just the third pair ever to win all four team sessions in the Presidents Cup.

Rolex testimonee Jordan Spieth, only the sixth player to go 5-0-0 in a Presidents Cup after winning his Sunday singles match said: “When you get to do it collectively while representing your country with some of the best players in the world, there is really nothing else that is more enjoyable.”

Love III has a long-standing affiliation with the Presidents Cup, having competed as a player in 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2005.

He joins an exclusive group of testimonees who have captained their side to victory, including Arnold Palmer (1996), Gary Player (2003*), Jack Nicklaus (2003*, 2005 2007) and Tiger Woods (2019).

The American was ably assisted by fellow testimonee Fred Couples, who served as a captain’s assistant for a fourth time, having done so in 2015, 2017 and 2019 and also led the team to victory as captain in 2009, 2011 and 2013.

After lifting the trophy, Love III said: “Thank you to Trevor and his team who did an incredible job this year – they took the level of sportsmanship and grace and friendship to a new level. To all my assistant captains – thank you guys for all your support, friendship and trust. I am extremely proud of this team of players. This has been one of the most fun, most together, supportive teams – they were unbelievably prepared.”

Rolex was also present as the Official Timekeeper at the 2022 Presidents Cup.
